He was celebrating his 92nd birthday at the Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel Sunday night. That is the same venue he was at just four days prior, for his wife Evelyn's homegoing service.
She died after suffering a massive stroke. The two have been married for 67 years and were considered a powerhouse couple in the civil rights movement.
Celebrities and local dignitaries attended Dr. Lowery's birthday celebration and fundraiser for the Lowery Institute for Justice and Human Rights.
The night was dedicated to his late wife.
